Taimur Ali Khan turned one year old on December 20, 2017. The entire Khan and Kapoor family gathered at the royal Pataudi palace to celebrate the birthday of the little munchkin. While the little one might have received many gifts from the family members, Kareena Kapoor’s dietician Rujuta Diwekar had a special gift for Taimur.
The celebrity dietician gave a glimpse of her gift through her Instagram account. Rujuta presented a forest in Sonave village located at the outskirts of Mumbai. The dietician shared a picture of the forest and wrote, “A little boy can never have enough of birds, bees and butterflies and so we have put together a small forest as a birthday gift for the little big boy, Taimur, in Sonave”.
Diwekar also mentioned that the forest thrives on inter-cropping and added, “I hope that as he grows he too will thrive in and celebrate a diverse society. A society where people live together through and due to their distinctions”. On the other hand several pictures were shared by the family members on social media.
The pictures showed Taimur making the most of his first birthday amidst the presence of close family members. The Pataudi Palace saw Babita Kapoor, Sharmila Tagore, Karisma Kapoor and her children Samiera and Kiaan, Saif Ali Khan, Kareena Kapoor and other members of the Khan and Kapoor family. Mother Kareena was at her fashionable best as she cuddled her one year old son in various pictures. Rujuta Diwekar has been the personal diet adviser for Kareena since many years. The actress with the help of Rujuta had acquired the zero figure for the film Tashan, which also starred Saif Ali Khan. It was the film Tashan when Kareena fell in love with Saif Ali Khan. The two got married on October 16, 2012 and were blessed with Taimur Ali Khan on December 20, 2016.
A little forest for Taimur A little boy can never have enough of birds, bees and butterflies and so we have put together a small forest as a birthday gift for the little big boy, Taimur, in Sonave. It’s a special forest, one that thrives on intercropping and i hope that as he grows he too will thrive in and celebrate a diverse society. A society where people live together through and due to their distinctions. The forest has about 100 trees on a 1000 sq ft plot. The trees are as young as Taimur, even younger actually, and each one of them is a local, native, climate resilient specie. It will be a forest of the super foods of the future. There are 3 jamuns, 1 jackfruit, 1 amla, 40 Bananas, 14 Moringas, 1 Kokum, 1 Papaya, 5 Seetaphal, 2 Ramphals, 2 Nimbu trees. Besides these it grows 3 different types of native pulses and many Mirchi, Ginger, Turmeric and kari patta plants. Not to mention the green leafy veggies and the genda phools that grow in between. The forest is inspired by Padma Shri Subhash Palekar’s zero budget natural farming where one tree grows symbiotically off another and thus is thrifty on one’s pocket. The forest will become a home for pollinating agents like the butterflies, bees, birds and earthworms. It will help nurture the soil, fix back the nitrogen and minerals in the soil that it grows on, preserve the water table and look elegant and beautiful while doing it all. Here’s to living sustainably! Happy Birthday. #taimuralikhan
